Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Taper's Compendium Panel sign-up sheet

Skobud, Security is the hardest job. I was thinking we need some very sharp people to make sure we keep Trolls away from Staff, Tapers, Engineers, Bands, Artists, Guests, Patrons, and The Archive. They need security. We need at least two people to run security. It's way more than any one person can handle. Everything really seems to come down to security. Personally, I am clueless. (A viable Commercial option might be possible?)

If you can secure any workable arrangement(s), you're welcome to sponsor this. The Archive might be the "best sponsor" for a Taper's Compendium. If that were the case, The Archive should be granted the credit for that. A "workable arrangement" must be "secured" for everyone involved. (Is this possible?)

I don't have a problem if Kochman wants to be the lead storyteller. He seems to enjoy it, and some of his stuff was pretty good. Someone needs to be in charge of Story Telling. If you look on The Panel, notice how Kochman is surrounded and cornered by Cliff, you, and Rastamon. The storyteller gets One Panel Vote, same as everyone else. Final say goes to The President. Ghost of Pig can be in charge if he wants, Directing. Someone needs to be Director.

We will require a very good Communications Director. This is the most important job.

The easiest way (for me) to do this (without a budget) is to use The Archive. The best way I can think of doing that is to write The Archive once we have our Game Plan. It takes 50 Items to get a New Collection going on The Archive. I have just demonstrated to everyone that we already have way, way more than 50 "Taper Items" floating around on The Archive right now. They just need to be reorganized into a Compendium. Countless photos and tapes are floating around the internet. We can come up with hundreds of items for a Taper's Compendium Collection to be created on The Archive, easily, if we decided. The Archive is a free Repository. They're able to host a free Taper's Compendium Collection, a free Taper's Compendium Forum, and we can Administrate all of it. The Archive's Terms of Use need to be considered very carefully. We have a Troll Problem.

We probably need to deal with some legal issues, such as Rights, Permissions, Copyrights, Releases, Waivers, Intellectual Property, and these kinds of things. (Blue Devil, for example) The Taper Compendium Project's multi-media archives will include OLD content, and NEW content. I've created a few Compendium models and Taper templates in this thread. Imagine the possibilities.

What about creating a new online Taper's Compendium by combining private web sites, The Archive, and Social Networking sites?

Charlie Miller on FaceBook
Monte The-Taper on FaceBook
Bluegrass Alliance Tribute on MySpace
Monte's Newgrass Taper story on Planet Bluegrass
Monte's GD Taper story on The Archive

Is it too much to ask, that I wanted to bring our Bluegrass Hotel story to The Taper's Compendium table? Music lovers and scholars all around the world would love to know about our Newgrass Music history, and some of the incredible jams that I was Taping inside those cavernous rooms at Bickel's place. I taped live music all over Louisville. People need to get back to me about this, otherwise this will never come to fruition.

Harry Bickel's place is The Bluegrass Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky

It is not too much to ask. Please leave it on the table. I find the story very interesting and I'm sure many others do as well. It's a great little nugget in the careers of some legendary musicians.
